First Review by vegancookbookaddict

good food, great service - Edit

Busy when we went about 1300-1400 but we were able to sit at the bar with the kids that was nice. Staff was incredibly friendly. Rachel and I had the double-bacon-double-cheese burger which we both enjoyed. Kids split the mac&cheese (huge serving size), and I was able to get the left overs after they were full. Location and atmosphere were good, price was slightly higher than the usual vegan fare. We would return again.

Pros: food, service, atmosphere

Cons: slightly higher prices

YUM - Edit

Went to Meet in Gastown with a group of omnivores and I think they may have loved this place even more than I did. The atmosphere was fun. The food was delicious (cauliflower with tamarind INCREDIBLE). Burgers were loved by all and the beet salad was yum!!

Pros: Casual, Great atmosphere, Variety

I thought I had ordered my last double-bacon cheeseburger a long time ago. - Edit

Not so, thanks to Meet! Their double-bacon (coconut & seitan) cheezburger was so authentic that it even fooled my omnivorous spouse.

Pros: a veggie menu that even non-vegs will love, traditional omnivore menu items made veggie, great atmosphere

Cons: can get crowded

Awesome Burgers - Edit

What an awesome welcome back to Canada. Our friends took us here on Canada Day right after a long flight from Germany. The portions are huge! So many good burgers, it was hard to choose. I got the Meet Burger(I think that's what it was called), so good with onion rings in the burger! The fries are also really good and come with chipotle mayo. I think they're all vegan now(yay!), according to the menu, as I didn't see any options to add dairy cheese. The atmosphere is also very lively and cool. Drink prices were a shocker after having lived in Europe for a while, but that's everywhere, not only here.

Pros: So many burgers!, friendly staff

Amazing food! - Edit

I was recently in Vancouver for a short vacation. Meet in Gastown was so good, we ate there twice! The food is both flavourful and plentiful. The mac n' cheese burger was really good, the jalapenos were a perfect touch! The gravy on the fries was really tasty as well. The bar makes some interesting drinks, such as a watermelon julep. If you only eat at one vegan restaurant when you're in Vancouver, then I highly recommend that you make it Meet in Gastown!

Pros: Amazing food, Incredibly friendly and informed staff, Huge portions

Cons: They ran out of cronuts!

Delicious Vegan Food & Spiked Floats! - Edit

I'm SO happy I ate here! The food was delicious, and they had both comfort food (variety of burgers and fries) and healthier bowls. I also splurged and enjoyed a rum-spiked root beer float, which was incredible. Fun place with a hipster environment, but not pretentious. Can't wait to go back on my next Vancouver trip!

Pros: Amazing Vegan Food, Fun Atmosphere, Yummy Alcoholic Drinks

Great Place - Edit

It's so nice to be able to go somewhere and know that your food isn't going to be contaminated by meat cooking a mere inch away from your veggie burger. This place is the best veggie joint in Vancouver hands down. I have been to Meet on Main several times and keep going back. This location is just as swell. One thing I noticed is they've scaled back on the portions. the one thing I liked was being able to take home leftovers. Maybe they are saving on food waste which I definitely support but for the price I feel like I should be able to snack on it the next day.

Pros: All veg, nice atmosphere, great food

Cons: a bit pricey, lesser portions than before, serves cheddar cheese

One happy vegan! - Edit

Great atmosphere, super friendly staff, and delicious plates of food. What more can you ask for? Portions are large. I got the angry burger and my husband got the bbq'd burger. Burgers come with a side salad and fries! Everything is vegan, unless you add non-vegan cheese. We'll definitely be going back before we go back home!

Pros: portion sizes, numerous options, atmosphere

Cons: kind of loud inside

this place rules. - Edit

I am a big fan of Meet on Main. I went to Meet in Gastown for lunch and it kicks ass just the same. I normally eat the Macro but I decided to go with a burger today. Double Bacon Cheeseburger. Super yummy. Great, friendly staff. Just go.

Pros: super yummy food.

Cons: it is a sit down restaurant so not great for short

Amazing vegan comfort food - Edit

Meet on Main has been one of my faves since it opened, and I was thrilled to find out at the soft opening that the food at Meet in Gastown tasted exactly the same! I had the double bacon double cheeseburger, which comes with salad and a ton of fries with delicious chipotle mayo. It's so nice to be able to get a veggie burger without worrying about hidden animal ingredients or the burger sharing the same grill with meat.
This location is much closer to me than the Main location, and I predict that I will be spending a lot of time here. Either location is a must-try while in Vancouver!
